When you graduate from Melbourne Polytechnic, your connection with us does not end.

We have exciting news – our Alumni Community for graduates is now live. Join other graduates and be part of it. Why? Because it will help you develop your career and future opportunities.The great news is that by finishing your qualification with us, you are now automatically part of it.

To start off, this is what you'll get from us:

  • Free membership
  • Invitation to Networking events to meet other alumni, community & industry partners (quarterly)

    • Themes: Lifeskills & Lifestyle, Professional and Inspire
  • Participation in career development workshops (new, being trialled in 2016, limited places)
  • eNewsletters (quarterly)
  • Curated content from partners & from Melbourne Polytechnic Schools to help you keep developing your career

The Golden Graduates Morning Tea is our inaugural premier event for graduates who studied here sometime from 1940s to 1980s. Melbourne Polytechnic has a long history of integrating practical learning with traditional theory across many trades and disciplines. Our future direction draws on this history to prepare our current students for the future.

Reconnect with us and past classmates in March 2017 at our Preston Campus.

With over 100 years of history, we warmly welcome all graduates; from NMIT, Preston College of TAFE, Collingwood College of TAFE, Northern Metropolitan College of Tafe, Collingwood Technical School to our early days as Preston Technical School.

But don't take our word for it, hear about it from the Honorable Julia Gillard, as Chancellor of Dūcere, Global Business School, who helped us launch the Alumni Community earlier in the year, at our Preston campus.
